AAAARGH. I am getting really tired of seeing writers use “Zenlike” (et al) to mean “posessed of a vague and indescribable coolness.” Your new couch is not Zen. Your bathroom tiles are not Zen.

Unless you can explain to me what you mean by “Zenlike” — in a way that actually relates it to Zen practice — then use something else. That is all.

    perhaps not exactly the same caliber of complaint but I am really tired of commentators using the tired phrase “but at the end of the day…”.
    As far as my knowlege of zen goes getting a slap on the side of the head is considered pretty zenish.
